The 500th anniversary of the Reformation is just around the corner and with it a year of festivities are being planned.



One of these is the THESES exhibition, which is visiting the famous Round Tower of Copenhagen before continuing onto Ribe, Toreby, Lemvig and finally Wittenberg in Germany, where Martin Luther posted his famous theses in 1517, thus starting the Reformation.

The Round Tower invites you to the exhibition of 25 prominent Danish artists who have developed different artwork – including paintings, sculptures, installations, photographs and graphic design – in relation to the Protestant anniversary.

The paintings of this exhibition by B Thom Stevenson are dilemma and protest paintings, as most of his work is somehow connected to conflict. He uses language and pictures to create imagery and communication tools – there is a lot to discover for the viewer, so stop by and observe!
